Music is at the core of Europe. Our shared musical culture unifies us as European citizens. It is our common language.


The starting point to this story is a young man’s journey. His lover, also a singer, has left him with a letter inviting him to visit places they have traveled to together that bring back memories. They believe at first that conjuring up happy memories alleviates the pain. Only to discover that it is only by asserting present time and focusing on what is to come that we can feel truly connected.


Be With Me Now becomes a tour of Europe’s mythical music locations : landmarks in the History of European Opera.


A co-production of the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, Snape Maltings, Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Theaterakademie August Everding, LOD muziektheater, Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel, Teatr Wielki - PNO, Dutch National Opera with the support of enoa and Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
